The story centers on a former doctor with psychic abilities (Hopkins) who is drawn into a serial-killer case, only to find that the killer (Farrell) is a psychic as well — so the two men can detect each other’s moves.
Morgan is playing a veteran FBI agent heading the investigation of a series of grisly murders. He recruits Hopkins’ character to help catch the killer.
Peter Morgan, who wrote The Queen and Frost/Nixon, penned the most recent draft of the script, which also has seen work from Sean Bailey, Ted Griffin and James Vanderbilt.
Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo., Tripp Vinson, and Thomas Augsberger are producing the long-gestating project, which began life at New Line but now is being made as an independent.
FilmNation is handling international territories, while UTA is repping domestic rights. Silver Reel is financing.
Shooting is due to start May 20 in Detroit. Matthias Emcke, Claudia Bluemhuber, Gerd Schepers and Jacob Pechenik are exec producing.
Morgan, who played the Comedian in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen and broke hearts in ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, next stars on the big screen with Chloe Moretz and Jessica Biel in The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Magic City returns for its second season this summer.
Morgan is repped by UTA, Rob Gomez of Precision Entertainment, and attorney Stuart Rosenthal of Bloom Hergott.
